I need a practical family wagon. Unfortunately this means that my green machine may have to go to make room for a boring white totota. :(

Is anyone keen to take custody of the little green godess? If so, how much are you prepared to pay?

Hey.

Registered in 1980. 1600dl sedan. Current warrent and reg. Will give a new warrent if and when sold.

Here is a link for more pictures. I will upload more when I get a chance.

http://s804.photobuc...achine/?start=0

Things I have done and have had done over the last 3 years are as follows and in no particular order.

Rebuild engine
Replace CVJs and DOJs (all of them)
New HT leads
New Coil
New points
New condenser
New Spark plugs
Rebuild Carburetor
Up grade seats (newer ones)
New front right wheel bearing.
Re-conditioned rack ends

Back tyres are new, front have plenty of life left.
Engine is totally reliable and with plenty of poke. Tested compression recently and all cylinders were at 160psi plus or minus 1 or 2 psi.

This car has been all over the country with me and never missed a beat. I will be gutted to part company with her.


Check out my other threads to see what else Iv'e been up to.

With regards to my noisy n.o. 3 cylinder, since playing with the carb and adjusting the timing it has all but gone. I still have no idea what it is but I am not really worried about it either.

She has passed her warrent of fittness with flying colurs the last couple of times. (although the bastards keep charging me for filling up the screen wash!)

I just noticed the hood vents seem to have some kind of trim on them that Ive never seen on a Gen 1 hood before, you wouldnt happen to have close up pics of those would you?

Well, I couldn't do it in the end.

Have just withdrawn her from trademe.

I don't know how it happened but instead of selling green machine we have just bought a 1988 Alfa 33!:lol:

We are going to sell the wifes corrola instead.:banana:

Look out on the OT for pics of our beautiful new 33 with 1.5 boxer engine!

Cheers

Okie Dokie.

She is back on the market! Again...

This time I know what I'm doing. Got my eye on a gen 1 brat as compensation.

She is listed on Trademe.

Sweet, That is a beautiful car, Its a shame you have to sell it :-\

Those vents are definitely something Ive never seen on a USDM model, it would be cool to re-create something like those for one of my rigs though :grin:
